I know that the widget is probably a little funky, but I had to re-size it. So yeah, Breeder is like the new Foldit, though this time instead of doing the nerdy by folding proteins, you're doing the nerdy by genetically breeding little guys to meet a goal. If you have ADD, don't play this. If you have OCD, don't play this if you have obligations because you'll be playing until you're out of breeds for the day (have fun, Tiff).

Well, the initial (amazing) teaser made it look like quite the Rez type game, and now with the new test footage is looking like some weird spermy-jelly-fishy game. I am well aware that it's just test footage, but it's still not looking very much like the teaser. It's set to come out March 1st here.
Well, the back light is now going out on my laptop. Know why? Because I dropped a heavy box on the screen. I'm lucky that's all that happened. A back light is $8 not including shipping and I'll have to replace it myself. Gah. It kinda works, but it makes the fluorescent light noise. Constantly. Migraine.
Finally got a good night's sleep last night, though it was with someone else's stuffed animals (thanks Christina!). I was trying to figure out my situation more than anything last night. I realized two things; a) I really like coffee and b) I haven't cried in a while. I can't remember the last time, which, coincidentally, made me cry. I cried feeling like a selfish shallow person that all of the things that have happened as of late didn't phase me. Before completing that thought I was asleep. I feel great today. I called some of my friends, I texted my cousin, and I made plans. That's something I haven't done in a while. I'm going to write in my journal today. Actually write instead of typing. :D Have Wall comments to make!
I've left the house once in almost two weeks. Today was the first day that I've looked out the window. I haven't talked to my friends or family in a while because I'm afraid, though I don't know why. I'm so insecure. I just feel like I'll screw things up again. I feel like a big failure. A wise man once told me that my best just wasn't good enough. I pretend like I "know" it's not true but I guess I've just believed it all these years. Any time I hit a bump in the road I always think it was bound to happen sooner or later. I've gained a bunch of weight. My mom says I might have a thyroid problem, but I really just think I was always meant to be this big. Even in the pictures where I was thin, my face has always looked the same. I stopped going to UA because I thought I couldn't do it. I thought that I would just screw up. So I tried NIT, you know, technical school, but the only job they could get me there was the one that I already had and didn't want. Matthew works at TP. I couldn't deal with having to see him everyday. I'm going to try to go back to UA. Part time. Just like work. Part time. I'd have to learn to sleep again. I haven't truly slept in almost a week. I'm awake until daybreak because I just can't fall asleep and I have nightmares until dark. Been running on coffee and computers. It's literally ridiculous. I want it to go back to what I had; college, a job, and freedom. I feel trapped again. Like there's no way out but to live somewhere else. I'm so far away from where I made my life. I miss the Pit; Jeff, Francisco, Shane, Sean, Nate, Britteny and Ryan, Eliot, Amanda, Pat, Andy and Lidnsay, Jordan, Britney, the Burketts twins (I'm scared that I won't be able to tell you two apart anymore), Vince (I still have your book, and I haven't forgotten), Ken, Megen, Mr. Hokage Sir (miss you, John), hell, even Shawna and Lyndie even though I didn't know them that well. I miss my best friends, too; Amanda, Christina (Red. XD There are SO MANY CHRISTINAS), Catlin, Tiffani (because I never have time with just me and her anymore), Brandy, and Ashley. I miss my buddies, too. Devan, Jamie, Ray, Papa Giorgio, Dani and David (I haven't forgotten about your pictures. I'm just afraid to send them to you), Nick, Alex, Gene frickin' Tanner. God. I wouldn't even mind seeing Paige right now. Miss my family the most; Tibby-cousin-Meg and Lil (David, too), Jeanna, grandma and grandpa... I'm so homesick. I don't want anyone to think differently of me than they did when they saw me last. Okay, maybe Paige, because we argued a little, but still. Man. Regardless of whether I have plans or not next week, I'm coming up to Akron. I. Yeah.
Well, it is supposed to be 2009 now, but I really want it to stay 2008 for another year, which would make today is January 1st, 2008! Woo! So Happy Old Year, [insert your name here]! I couldn't've (omg, a double conjunction!) done it without you! "It" of course being blogging about stupid shit and taking pictures of ordinary things at odd angles. Hopefully, starting anew will be easier the second time around!
